I try to buy local 1st based on what is in season. Most produce has a growing season and purchasing fruits/veggies in season at wholesale amounts can save you greatly.Not all produce is local. We do not have any apple orchards here in Florida..they grow in Washington & New York. Grapes grow better in California. I try to shoot for 6 veggies & 5 fruits every week, however some weeks may differ...more or less based on the types of items inside.
By Sunday I post on our Facebook page and send out an email what will be included in the bin for the week.
You will have options. Medium, Large, Weekly Specials, and Extras!
You should receive and email response after submitting your order.
Please check your spam folder, some responses end up there.
You must create an account to order on this site.
For Pick up locations, you have until 7pm the night before that pick up to order. For example, if you want to order for Summerfield pick up on Wednesday Night, your order would have to be in by 7pm on Tuesday night. For Delivery orders, you have until 12pm the day before your delivery day to place an order. For example, if you live in Waterset and choose Waterset delivery on Wednesday, your order would have to be in by 12pm Tuesday. Delivery orders gets invoiced through square at this time. The square invoice must be paid by 12pm the day of delivery.
There is a ONCE A YEAR $5 MEMBERSHIP FEE when you first sign up to join our Co Op and at the beginning of each following year.
It goes towards covering our overhead costs such as our; bags, canopies, tables, supplies...etc.
Once you're registered there is NO OBLIGATION to a weekly bin. Simply order when you need one, or when you see a weekly deal you are interested in.
The weekly bin cost is always $20 for medium, and $30 for a large.
We also provide amazing weekly deals that you are welcome to add-on your order. Add ons are items that you can purchase in addition to your bin. Sometimes I purchase items such as berries, melons, citrus, etc in addition to your bin. There are also many amish products, meat choices, and bread items to choose from.
You DO NOT have to purchase a bin to purchase extra items.
Perhaps you don't want a bin for the week, but you would like to buy some add ons...feel free.
Q- If I can’t pick up my bin at the location I chose, can I pick it up later in the week at another location?
A- If you let us know more than 24 hours in advance, we can accommodate changing the pick up to another location. Less than 24 hours and your bin that you did not pick up will be donated and it will count as a strike.
Q- What if I cant pick up my bin after I signed up?
A- Things happen. Please try to find a family member or friend to pick up your bin for you. If you let me know that you had an emergency or something urgent came up and you are unable to pick up your bin at times we can accommodate you.
We really need a 24 notice before pick up to cancel bins. However...if you purchase a bin...fail to pick up..then its strike one. Strike 2 you are out of the Co Op...and I promise its a Co Op you want to be a part of.
Produce is perishable & never perfect. We do not get the same luxury as big box retailers in getting to grade through foods to display the prettiest. Sometimes our peppers are distorted...our zucchini is gigantic...or our peaches are shaped funny. Don't worry odd and ugly fruit tastes the same as the normal and pretty fruit.
However...sometimes we may get a bad lot. If this happens please message me and if you can..snag a picture. If there is a mass amount of folks with the same problem...sometimes I can get credit from the farmer/wholesaler. Not always. I try my very best to ensure that everything is awesome.
First...we encourage you to branch out and try new things. That's one of the best parts of this Co Op. Trying new things for you and your family. Don't know how to prepare something? No worries...everyone in the group loves to trade ideas/recipes. Still don't want the item? Trade it out.
At this time we are not doing trade outs due to the drive through system we are using for social distancing.
You do not have to purchase a Bin to place an order.
